The Oasis of Filth – Part 2 – The Hopeless Pastures

Reeling from the events of The Oasis, the doctor retreats to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, living a hermit’s life. But in time he begins to rediscover his humanity, through the companionship of Addy, a faithful dog, and Alain, a mysterious refugee from another walled city. When tragic events again consume his life and threaten his closest friends, will he give in to despair or find a new reason to carry on?


Self-Publishing Reviews: 5 stars “While a book about outcasts banding together may seem as overdone a trope as zombie fiction itself, once again I have to assure anyone reading this that the author, Keith Soares, is in all ways a step above those expectations in his ideas and his execution… I don’t recommend reading this book; I recommend reading every book this author publishes, as I have no doubt he will continue raising the bar.”


IndieReader Approved: 4.5 stars
“Soares paints a frightening, realistic picture of life in a post-apocalyptic world… It’s refreshing to read a book in this vein that allows the reader to explore a protagonist’s anguish without relying on a flat, twenty-something hero.”

Reader Reviews:

“Wow! What writing! Again, an absorbing, taut, suspenseful story. Gripping, and human. The medical crisis turned apocalypse that started in The Oasis of Filth continues in this well-written novel. A must read!”

“‘The Hopeless Pastures’ is a worthy sequel to ‘The Oasis of Filth’ — a story that stands on its own, but also expertly sets up the final chapter to this compelling series.”

“Boy does the author deliver. The dramatic arcs of the story are like riding a great rollercoaster.”

“Soares does a masterful job of making the situations and outcomes seem eerily plausible, which heightens the creepiness factor and suspense immensely for me.”

“Great storytelling! There are twists I couldn’t have seen coming (and neither will you) and, after turning the last page, I sat here for many minutes wondering what I would have done in the situations in which the characters find themselves.”
